Constructing your residential homes from scratch is fun. So much consideration and ideas to choose from, starting from designs and layouts. It allows you to get creative and put in modern features that you dream of in your home. The modernized features will help you design your house better to be easy to sell in the future. Listed below are the best modern features you need to consider for your new home.
A taller ceiling for your home adds aesthetic value by giving the rooms a more open feel. The rooms will appear luxurious and give you more space for your wall paintings and other wall fixtures. Compared to the traditional six-inch ceiling, a modern eight-inch ceiling makes your rooms look spacious and well organized.
Installing bright, colorful lighting in and outside your cabinets gives an aesthetic look, especially when added to your kitchen. You may add later adhesive strip lighting after you finish the construction, but built-in ones are more elegant. You should use the stand-alone bulbs and connect them directly to your master switches. It will be convenient to switch the lights on and off.
Heated flooring is an additional feature currently gaining popularity, especially in residential properties. It will be useful during winter to help you warm up your floors and houses. You can add the floor heating by installing a coil under your floorboards. They have switches so it will be possible to turn them on and off. You can also install them in the bathrooms to help you warm up even the chilly rooms in your home.
A heated driveway is useful during the winter when the snow covers the driveway, making it hard to move your car. With a heated driveway, snow melts as soon as they touch the driveway. It will also protect your car engine and battery from freezing and requiring you to jumpstart it almost every day during winter. The driveway will also become a lovely spot for you to chill outside with a cup of tea and watch your neighbors shovel out the snow.
In conclusion, new home features are mostly installed to add comfort to your home. For instance, smart home devices will not only add comfort but security. Installing them during construction will be more efficient and convenient. The smart devices include self-programmable heating systems, cooling systems, thermostats, doorbells, carbon, and smoke detectors, to mention a few.
